The radical ideas of one generation often become the common sense of the next, and today we take these ideas for granted. Here, historian and professor of politics Peter Dreier honors the trailblazers that have spoken truth to power and, in doing so, changed the course of American history. Offering insightful and occasionally surprising stories of the most important progressive leaders of our recent past, The 100 Greatest Americans of the 20th Century stands to be a landmark text on these radicals and reformers who challenged the status quo of their day.
This discussion is free and open to the public.
